Our man Casey filmed this episode very near his fifty-first birthday. Mr. Kasem and I share a birthday though he was born thirty-four years before I was so I would have been seventeen and just getting my driver's license in the last month of my junior year in high school. Back to the Countdown... In my most humble opinion this Top 10, even the Top 40 of Billboard's Hot 100 for the week ending April, 30, 1983, is one of the strongest ever with Prince debuting at #10 and Michael Jackson like a boss with two songs in Top 10. Bonus points for you if you knew Laura Branigan sang a Der Kommissar song because I never did until watching this episode. burtiscurtis09 comes through with a dang near thirteen minute edit of this week's episode, complete with intros and outros for the three spotlight videos and the following charts: Pop, LPs and Soul. Check out those videos and charts below before peeping the episode.
